What are the Factors Boosting the Global Disposable Endoscopes Market?

Increased Adoption of Developed Technology among the Disposable Endoscope Manufacturers to Boost the Market

The rapid development along with the increasing investment by the key disposable endoscope manufacturers is expected to play a significant role in driving the market in the forecast period. Players like Pentax, Olympus, and Fujifilm sell disposable endcap duodenoscopes and GI Scientific sells a shield that could be attached to a reusable duodenoscope to lessen contamination during the procedures.

In addition, the increasing clearances by the regulatory bodies are likely to increase the usage of disposable endoscopes in the coming time. For instance, Boston Scientific received FDA 510 (k) clearance in 2019 for the first fully disposable duodenoscope, known as Exalt D. Further, the Chinese medical device manufacturer, EndoFresh revealed that it gained 510(k) clearance for its single-use endoscopy system for use in gastrointestinal procedures.

Moreover, to reduce the number of deaths occurring due to usage of the infected endoscope, there has been a significant rise in the demand for the equipment. For instance, in 2019, FDA revealed its analysis of medical device reports over 5 ½- months from March of that year. The analysis disclosed 45 reports of patient infection and 159 reports of device contamination associated with insufficient reprocessing of duodenoscope used in medical procedures concerning bile duct and pancreas.

Key Takeaways from the Market Study

  • Global disposable endoscopes market to be valued at over US$ 2 Bn by 2022
  • By application, bronchoscopy to accumulate a revenue share worth over 28% in 2022
  • North America to dominate the global market. The region to have secured about 41% of the global market share in 2021.
  • Asia Pacific to be the fastest growing market, expected to flourish at a CAGR of 17%

“Reduced chances of spreading hospital acquired infections is likely to bode well for the demand for single-use endoscopes in forthcoming years,” – says an analyst at Fact. MR.
